Upcoming Events

Conversations for Change

Beginning in September 2014, the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin (AHW) endowment began hosting a series of events called Conversations for Change.

At each Conversation, the AHW endowment will invite a content expert and representatives from funded projects to facilitate discussion about issues influencing health in Wisconsin. The goal is to develop shared understanding about where we are on a particular issue and what proven or innovative strategies could be implemented in the near future to create significant, positive change.

The next Conversation in the series will be held in Milwaukee on December 17, 2014. The topic for the discussion is community-based mental and behavioral health.

On December 18, 2014, a rescheduled Conversation for Change session will be held in Wausau. The event had been planned for November 2014 but was postponed due to severe winter weather. The topic for the discussion is the utilization of community collaboration to promote health in Wisconsin's rural communities.

Past Sessions 

The series began with a session in Milwaukee on September 17, 2014, which focused on improving access to health care services as well as on implementing more effective approaches for managing chronic disease.

The following discussion, which was held in Eau Claire on Thursday, September 19, 2014, focused on prevention and treatment of alcohol and other drug abuse.

On October 16, 2014, a Milwaukee conversation focused on improving health literacy and developing cultural competency to reduce disparities in Wisconsin's communities.
